The future is closer than you think, flying cars are ready to buy now.



The Parajet Skycar is the world's first street legal flying car. It may look more like a dune buggy, and it flies more like a paraglider than the cars in Futurama, but you can buy one now for £55k. The car was taken from London to Timbuktu - 3700 miles - by the creator and a former British army officer showing it can cope with the extremes of the Sahara, (and driving in London!).

See more on the Parajet website. If only that was a referral link and my readers could be persuaded to buy one..

Perhaps this is more like the image that 'flying car' brings to mind:






UPDATE: After writing this, I browsed to XKCD and had a 'Randall, get out of my head' moment:

  7. This is THE coolest thing. The price-tag is absolutely ridiculous. Surely the materials didn't equal a quarter of the cost.
